Urgent recall:Robinson’s fruit shoot sold at McDonald’s and Tesco

ROBINSON’S fruit shoot sold at Costco, McDonald’s and Tesco is being recalled due to concerns that children could choke on the lid.

The spout within the bottle cap of the apple and blackcurrant flavour could detach and become a safety risk, the Food Standards Agency (FSA) said in a statement.

It added that the 200ml drinks are being recalled as a precautionary measure following “a small number of reports”.

The fruit shoots were sold in multi-packs of 24 bottles at Costco and Tesco, and as single bottles at McDonald’s between June 22 and 28.

The product recall applies to the drinks with batch code numbers of N06 L9171, N05 L9164 and N05 L9171.

They have a best before date of the end of March 2020.

Britvic, the owner of Robinson’s, said no other fruit shoot products are affected.

We asked the drinks maker how much the bottles were sold for but we haven’t yet heard back.
